You know, we’ve got a modest DVD library here at Ping West and I think I’ve only watched extras on DVDs once or twice.
It’s funny though, because when a DVD has only the movie and trailer… it seems like a waste. Or that something is missing. I’ve come to expect these extras but then I don’t even bother with them. After all, I’m usually not sitting around on a Saturday thinking, “What were the five trailers for Dogma anyway?” Having deleted scenes is nice but only if they’re shown within the context of the original film, I think.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons that movie downloads will (in a few years) work: the extras are very nice to have but not essential.
